tv   CBS This Morning  CBS  July 7, 2012 5:00am-7:00am PDT

5:00 am
i'm anthony mason. i'm rebecca jarvis. here are a few of the stories we'll be looking on "cbs this morning saturday." the nation struggles with a relentless heat wave. more than 200 cities have broken records in the last 30 days. 13 people have died in the extreme temperatures that are testing the nation's infrastructure. another disappointing jobs report. only 80,000 jobs added last month. the unemployment rate is stuck at 8.2%. how to fix that is the topic for these two men with only one job in mind. this is the busiest time of year for the hospitals, but are you safe? we'll have the surprising results of a new survey that could make you choose another emergency room.
5:01 am
and the days of popcorn, peanuts and crackerjack are long gone as we hit the allstar break we're rating the best food in major league ball parks. join us for hot dogs and garlic fries. all that and more on "cbs this fries. all that and more on "cbs this morning saturday," july 7, 2012. captioning funded by cbs it is a core scorcher of a saturday we join us. >> it's supposed to hit 100 here in. >> you think about new york, chicago, all across the country. we begin with that heat wave. it will not quit. excessive heat warnings are going to remain in place today for much of the country and in some places high humidity will even make it feel hotter. it certainly does here in new york. over a dozen people have died and the nation's power grid is
5:02 am
also being pushed to the limit. we head outside to lonnie quinn for the latest. he's braving it for us. it is going to get hot, very hot here. it's going to get hot where you live as well. this heat is something else. day after sweltering day from the gateway arch in st. louis to chicago's lakefront to times square in new york city, the triple digit temperatures just will not quit. 238 cities to be exact have set all-time highs in the last 30 days. according to weather historian chris burke, the heat wave that started last month, it is one for the ages. this last june will probably go into the record books as more record all-time hot temperatures being set since june 1936.
5:03 am
>> burke says the air mass responsible for the heat wave started in mexico, it then worked its way into the rockies. it tracked east to the mid-atlantic and then it retreated and settled bag over the midwest. >> once this pattern set up, it can become stagnant. >> the prolonged heat has taken its toll on infrastructure. just outside washington, d.c. where temperatures topped 95 degrees for the ninth straight day, a metro car derailed due to the heat. 55 people were evacuated. but no one was injured. a road near madison, wisconsin, needed repairs after it actually buckled from the intense heat. the national weather service issued heat warnings for 25 states friday with more expected today. so far, at least 13 have died as a result of all the extreme temperatures. inside the control room at con edison, new york city utility. they're bracing for another day of near 100-degree weather. >> the heat always gives us a
5:04 am
challenge. we expect scattered outages. >> i'm going to tell you this much. the good news for con edison is that power consumption here in new york city, it drops by 15% on a weekend because so many people get out of the city to escape the heat. but the best news of all, this heat wave for most people should be breaking sometime late sunday. i'll have more on that later in the show. but right, rebecca, anthony back to you in the studio. >> good to hear it. lonnie, thanks so much. what is causing this oppressive heat and raging fires all summer? >> joining us now is dave robinson, a professor at rutgers university and the official climatologist for new jersey. what's specifically going on in the atmosphere causing this stifling heat? >> we've had a super charged atmosphere. we have a jgigantic ridge of hih pressure that passed over the united states over the last couple of weeks and brought record heat to denver, st. louis, atlanta and many places in between. >> is that also what's
5:05 am
contributing to the drought, the wildfires and these crazy storms that we've been seeing for the last couple of weeks? >> absolutely. when you get this ridge of high pressure, it's dry, it's clear, sunny. you're baking in the ground. that makes it hotter. you dry it out. wildfires begin. drought is spreading across the country as we speak. >> we've got 56% of the lower 48 states in drought conditions right now. have we seen this before? >> we've seen it before. there's summers of '88, then the dust bowl period in the '30s. but we're seeing so many different parts of the climate system kind of on high octane, the droughts, the floods, the wildfires, the excessive heat. we're seeing everything that nature can give us during the summe all in this one intense period. >> what drives that? what explains why it would happen this summer versus last or the year before? >> there's natural variability to the system. we're seeing not just in the united states, all over the
5:06 am
world, things we've not seen in the natural record before. underlying all of the day-to-day mother nature type variability is what humans are doing to the climate system. the general idea of global warming. >> we're basically seeing climate change happening before our eyes? >> we're beginning to see it. you can't take any one particular event and ascribe it to climate change. but when you look at the multitude of events that are going on from the arctic to the united states down to the equator, you start thinking that humans are having something behind this. >> given that thesis, do we see then more of the same and things getting worse? >> we should see things get worse. in the short term, we're worried about drought. we're goin to get a little break from the heat in the east, eastern half of the country in the next week or two. but we're really worried about getting enough rainfall. >> all right. dave robinson, thanks for joining us. >> my pleasure. now to the june jobs report. for the third year in a row, the economy is in a summer slump. economists had expected about
5:07 am
95,000 new jobs. but friday's report showed only 80,000 were added last month. a third straight month of weak job growth. >> from april through june, the economy has produced an average of just 45,000 jobs a month. earlier this year it was 200,000 jobs a month on average. the unemployment rate now remains unchanged at 8.2%. wall street did not react that well to the numbers. the dow fell 124 points wiping out all the weak gains and joining us is the senior editor for baron's, the dow jones business and financial. this is a topic. everybody at this table has been talking about for some time now and a lot of people are looking at these numbers and saying, wow, four more years is how long, if we're going at this rate, four more years is the pace of recovery for the jobs market. do you see it that way? >> not necessarily. at least not exactly at this pace for four more years. it definitely is a long repair process. once you've had one of these
5:08 am
financial crises, you had a credit bust and housing bust. it takes longer than after a typical recession to recover those jobs. a lot else going on right now. a private company that has conditioned themselves for low growth environment. this is the job market you get when you're growing at 2% or less which is what we're doing in the united states right now. >> we were talking about this yesterday. you talk to employers and they basically say, things aren't great but they're okay. but they're used to now this kind of environment, they know what they need, not going to hire beyond that. will they get the business? >> there's also other excuses not to do hiring aggressively now. whether it be what's going to happen in europe, the china, potential hard landing this their economy. we have a sort of a situation where companies are finding reasons not to go out and hire so much. i would point out, without all the public sector layoffs. it's down 2.5% since the recovery started. we would not have 8.2% unemployment. it would be closer to 7%.
5:09 am
the fact that states and m municipalities are tightening their belts -- >> does this concern you, the lowest in ten months growth? >> it's definitely concern that it's looked like a trend. in other words, the three months has seen job growth stalled close to that level. i would point out, as you mentioned, you have 200,000 plus early in the year. there are going to be statistical variations in the short term. but it seems the case right now where we're at stall speed for the labor market. >> this psychology hung over last summer and the summer before and all of a sudden we popped out of it. we saw -- you think that's going to happen again? >> potentially. i think if you get europe stabilizing -- i don't like to point to the whole uncertainty question. it's not just the election. it's about the federal government's finances and stimulus measures that are going to expire. it has to have some effect. the other thing to point out in the last two years, you did get
5:10 am
renewed aggressive efforts by the federal reserve to try to make money cheaper and more available. i don't think the numbers have been bad enough to motivate the fed to do anything more in that regard. that's the thing that i think a lot of people will look towards if the labor market weakens. >> there are a lot of calls. they will get louder as things get worse. thank you so much. the presidential campaign mg any fies the importance of these job numbers. during his just ended bus tour, president obama emphasized that more must be done to put americans back to work. but mitt romney pounced on the jobs report saying it shows the president's recovery plan is failing. norah o'donnell has more. >> day two for president obama's campaign bus tour. visiting a pennsylvania bakery. >> let me get a classic apple pie. >> and a food manufacturing plant in ohio. all along touting his efforts to increase manufacturing and automotive jobs. important employers to the local
5:11 am
economy. >> but june's anemic jobs report cuts into that sales pitch and mitt romney hit the president immediately on those numbers. >> we have seen the jobs report this morning. and it is another kick in the gut. to middle class families. >> he also mocked the obama campaign's slogan saying the president needs to take responsibility for the economic doldrums. >> ford doesn't look a lot like ford to the millions and millions of families that struggling today in this great country. it doesn't have to be this way. >> the obama campaign hopes to push the idea that the economy would not get better if mitt romney were' elected president. they want voters to believe as one senior adviser told us, would get worse. >> i've got a different idea. i've got a different theory. >> speaking at a stop along his bus tour, mr. obama mentioned the increase of 80,000 jobs, calling them a step in the right direction but also saying he's not satisfied with progress so far.
5:12 am
>> we've got to grow the economy even faster. we've got to put even more people back to work. >> now, president obama will have to face voters in less than four months without much of a change expected in the jobs picture. for "cbs this morning saturday," norah o'donnell, pittsburgh, pennsylvania. and joining us now from washington with the latest on campaign 2012 is susan page. she's washington bureau chief for usa today. great to have you with us, susan. thank you. rebecca, great to be with youment. >> we see how the jobs numbers are impacting the rhetoric in this case. to what degree will they be game changers when voters decide in a few months? >> it certainly could be. as we've been hearing this morning these job numbers indicate that the economy has slowed. it's not likely to have a big turn around before november. and so president obama needs to do something that no incumbent president has done since fdr, and that is win reelection when unemployment is so high. the highest unemployment rate
5:13 am
we've had for a president who won reelection is 7.2%. it's unlikely now this unemployment rate will go below 8%. he needs to defy history to win a second term. >> susan, do you think ultimately that the job numbers are defensible for the president? >> you've heard the defense that he was making yesterday when he was on the road in ohio and pennsylvania. he says, i inherited a really tough situation. no question about that. he says we're on the right track. we need to stay on this course. of course, you hear the counter argument from mitt romney who says he's had his chance, he's had four years, we can do better. that is really the battle we're going to see over the next four months. one other reason the job numbers that came out yesterday are so important. the summer is the time when voters tend to make up their minds about what the economy is like, the impressions get set, they get harder and harder to change in the fall. >> it's striking to me, you have a jobs report come out, the focus returns to jobs from health care to some degree. however, the focus on mitt romney's campaign has been very much a well, is it a tax or is
5:14 am
it a -- exactly defining what that role is of the health care mandate. and he came out on "cbs this morning" clarified the point a few days ago, said he's sticking with the idea that it's a tax. how is that going to play in his campaign and do you think they bring it up more if the economy stays in the state it's in right now? >> boy, mitt romney was having a tough couple days before this jobs report came out yesterday. you know what i think concerns some republicans when they look at the romney campaign is not so much the debate over is it a tax, is it a penalty. it seems like you're back in english class to talk about that. but rather that they weren't very nimble in handling it. they spent a couple days trying to figure out how to characterize that supreme court decision. a lot of republicans thought the court decision should have been such a big boost to the romney campaign by defining the health care penalty as a tax. americans don't like taxes. but governor romney is in kind
5:15 am
of a tough position talking about health care because he backed that massachusetts plan. definitely the romney people are glad to not be talking about that now and instead to talk about jobs. >> susan, what do you make of the rumors of a shakeup in the romney campaign? >> people i talked to say there won't be a shakeup. people who have been with him for a long time, even back to his gubernatorial race. but they do say they're hiring a lot of new people. we're going to see more senior republicans coming on to that campaign and speaking for him. >> susan paige, thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you, rebecca. in florida, george zimmerman is out on bail for a second time. zimmerman is the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with the murder and the shooting death of trayvon martin. as mark strassmann reports, this time his freedom comes with very strict conditions. >> george zimmerman was released after five weeks inside seminole county's jail, his home after his original bond and freedom
5:16 am
were revoked by judge kenneth lester. >> he's no different than anybody else. >> the judge was angry that zimmerman and his wife misled him when they had $155,000 sitting in an online defense fund. mark o'mara zimmerman's laura greed his client was at fault. >> he should have jumped up and said she's lying. didn't tell you about the -- >> i don't expect that. i expect a tug on the sleeve. >> even a tug on the sleeve. agree. he should have done something. absolutely. and he didn't. >> lester increased zimmerman's bail to $1 million this time. in his nine-page order, the judge wrote, by any definition, the defendant has flooded the system. it appears to the court that the defendant is manipulating the system for his own benefit. on zimmerman's behalf, o'mara asked the public for donations saying on a website r for those who feel the case is an affront to constitutional rights, now is the time to show your support. since thursday, o'mara claimed they've raised another $20,000.
5:17 am
in new orleans, trayvon martin's parents were outraged zimmerman is free again. >> just to know that the killer of my son may walk free sometime one day it really hurts. >> this time, zimmerman will have to go into hiding locally in seminole county. judge lester won't let him go anywhere else or have a bank account. for "cbs this morning saturday," mark strassmann in atlanta. the fbi has issued what amounts to a doomsday warning for internet users on monday at 12:01 a.m. eastern time. a malicious virus hiding in hundreds of thousands of home and business computers could cause them to lose their internet connections. to tell you how to protect yours is tech columnist for reuters media file. thanks for being with us. >> my pleasure. >> what is a dns changer virus and what does it do to your computer sh. >> it's been around for a long time. last year the fbi and some other organizations arrested some guys in estonia.
5:18 am
what they were doing is changing where you went when you typed in a web address. if you typed in you would show up someplace else. >> what do you need to do between now and monday to protect yourself? >> you have to check and see whether your computer and home network is infected. you'll get a nice graphic that's red or green. green means you're fine. red means you need to download software. it will take care of the virus there. it will reset the dns numbers. >> if you download that software, you're in the clear. >> you should be in the clear, that's right. >> how many people could be affected by this shutdown? >> the estimate is several hundred thousand still that aren't paying attention. this has been known for quite some time. there's been all kinds of warnings, we sent the car, the boat the helicopter. now it's time to do something. but the worst case scenario here is that you won't be able to do anything until you do the fix.
5:19 am
the fix is really quite simple. if you don't know how to do it, get a teenager. >> when you say you can't do anything, you can't access the internet, your computer. >> you can do e-mails. but websites are dead to you. >> completely dead to you. how do people protect themselves in the future? >> well, the important thing to do here is always have a firewall. always have anti-virus software, especially on a windows machine. they're very vulnerable. this affects macs and the windows machine. have the anti-virus update repeatedly. it stopped the updates which meant that even though you were not getting to the right website, it meant you were vulnerable to other -- you have to have anti-virus and a firewall. then you'll be okay. >> john abel, thank you. appreciate it. there is good news this morning about the destruction or rather the destructive waldo canyon wildfire in colorado. fire officials report it is just about fully contained. the giant blaze burned for two
5:20 am
weeks, charred 18,000 acres of woodlands, destroyed nearly 350 homes and left at least two people dead. a chicago man who served more than three decades in prison has been exonerated for a crime he did not commit. andre davis was twice convicted by juries for the 1980 rape and murder of a 3-year-old illinois girl. but a dna report concluded he didn't do it. davis was 19 when he was convicted. he's now 50. he was freed last night. libyans are voting today in their first free parliamentary election in 60 years. they're choosing a 200-member assembly from a field of 3700 candidates. the vote comes more than a year after the ouster of dictator moammar gadhafi, but the election was marred by violence in one city where protesters stormed a polling station and burned hundreds of ballots. in spain, they're running with the bulls in pamplona. the annual festival kicked off today. thousands took to the narrow
5:21 am
city streets trying to outrun the charging animals. at least six people were injured. the running of the bulls is a spanish tradition dating to the 14th century in pamplona. it continues every day through next saturday. >> can you imagine doing that, running with the bulls? >> no. >> i'm going to be honest. i don't think i would do it either. >> no. >> it is about 21 minutes past the hour. i wonder if lonnie quinn, would you do it? >> there's a little danger element involved. every year you hear about accidents. no, that's not for me. i want to talk about this, though. guys, you look at the big satellite radar picture for the country and the story is the heat. there are no major storms for me to point out. i will say, this line of clouds and some wet weather up around the great lakes stretching towards montreal, that's a cold front. we want that to drop down to the south. and it will be pushing through the northeast quadrant of the united states by the time you get -- late in the day on sunday. the problem has been, the jet stream. the jet stream is so far north, it's up around the canadian border, consequently, it separates the warm air, hot air
5:22 am
from the cold air and doesn't allow the cold air to drop into our area. consequently, we've had day after day of 90-plus heat. look at the numbers. indianapolis and baltimore have had ten 90-degree days in a row. chicago has had seven. new york and philadelphia three. by the time you get to 3:00 p.m. this afternoon, you will add another day. today is another hot one. the good news, every city listed on this map will have temperatures in the 80s by the time you get to monday. that's a quick look at the national picture. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend. all right. anthony, rebecca, you guys stay cool. >> thank you, lonnie.
5:23 am
you're always staying cool. >> i try. i try so hard. >> coming up, what you need to know about your hospital. you don't want to miss this. this is something you need to know before you get sick. we'll have the results of consumer reports first ever hospital safety rating. and surprise. wait until you hear what people really do when they're supposed to be working at home. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." ,,,,,,,,,,,,

katie holmes and tom cruise in the news. katie wants sole custody of their daughter s uri in their divorce apparently to protect her from cruise's church of scientology. scientology officials are pushing back saying they had nothing to do with the break-up. >> we'll talk to a former scientologist who says it won't be easy for katie or s uri to leave the church behind. this is "cbs this morning ,,,,,,
5:26 am
5:27 am
make it stop, lonnie. so many people are focusing on, is it going to reach 100 degrees today? i don't believe we will. i think it will be the upper 90s. it doesn't make a difference. the humidity, that's the brutal part of it all. >> 110 here. honestly, once it's over 95, can you tell the difference? >> splitting hairs out there. the whole idea of the heat index, when we say what does that mean, that's when you factor in the humidity. we cool off by sweating. if the air is nice and dry, that sweat can evaporate and that cools you off. but if it's muggy, the sweat can't evaporate and you keep that warm film of moisture. >> it's called a glow. >> for rebecca, yes. >> for me, it's not. >> it's sweat. >> that's right.
5:28 am
>> i want to know how it feels to be the weatherman at times like this? is it tough? >> everybody during the winter is complaining about how cold it is, then you get to this time of year, everybody complains about how hot it is. where do i find my peace. >> 80 degrees and sunny. >> it's actually not great being the weatherman. people think you can change it. i can't do anything. i can read the models, tell you what i believe it's going to do. >> i'm surprised you're saying you can't change it. i really felt -- >> honest to goodness, if you knew the calls i get. mr. quinn, my daughter is getting married september 29th. should we get a tent? i'm like. if you like tents. >> wedding planner on the side. >> cash for your advice. >> there's got to be an app i can put together for this, right? >> i'm going to look into that. >> weather app. >> i will manage that career. i'd happily manage that career.,

♪ little overcast in georgia in morning. little cool in georgia in morning. might go down there. welcome to "cbs this morning saturda saturday". i'm rebecca jarvis. >> i'm an than i mason. more and more people are working from home. there are distractions, such as the tv, the chores or even a drink. do they make you less productive? we'll have the surprising answers. >> you can have a drink while you watch the show. we're okay with that. plus, when you check into a hospital, will you also check out? that is really the most important of checking into the hospital is getting out. for the first time consumer reports magazine looked at six key factors, including mortality rates to find the safest
5:31 am
hospitals in the country. speeding up the alps with a great view but no net. that and other stories behind the headlines. but first the top story this half hour. the katie holmes, tom cruise divorce. the church of scientology is now responding to reports that it's responsible for the split. the sure says the religion has nothing to do with the divorce but people close to katie holmes say differently. katie holmes may not be saying much about her split from tom cruise. but former scientologists say it won't be easy separating herself from his church. >> a bunch of former scientologists told me she should be scared. not only is it going to be daunting but it might be scary and dangerous for her. >> that's been the message in new york where katie moved with her 6-year-old daughter suri. >> there's been speculation that suri was being groomed to be part of the upper echelon of the
5:32 am
church of scientology. there was concern she was about to be indoctrinated. >> it led holmes to leave cruise. after a daily barrage of damaging headlines, the cruise camp responded today. according to tmz, a source close to the actor said she was totally committed to scientology. she had enthusiasm for it and would voluntarily and gladly participate in it when tom was off shooting movies. this is not a fight over religion. it's used as a way to hurt tom. holmes, the former dawson's creek star was raised a catholic and is being advised according to some by her father, a divorce lawyer in akron, ohio. a new feature in elle magazine indicates holmes is making a bold break from cruise and scientology. >> i think the church is really concerned that katie as many other former scientologists create a tell-all narrative about what goes on inside. if she even tells one detail,
5:33 am
that's too much for the church. they don't want anything getting out about what they do. >> joining us now is a member of the church of scientology for 16 years before leaving for good in 1998. >> she says she met tom cruise only once and briefly. but understands that what katie is going through right now. good morning. thanks for being with us. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> what is katie holmes going through right now, do you think? >> i think katie is showing that she still retained her independent thinking despite the fact that tom cruise is all about control and that's what a senior level scientologist shows in his behavior. i think that katie is not as indoctrinated as she cough become at this point in scientology. i think that, as an independent thinker, i think she's choosing to not allow suri to be raised only as a scientologist. i think she's trying to get her life back. >> should she be scared? >> i think in a lot of ways my
5:34 am
greatest concern for her would be how suri would be treated by tom when she's not with katie. if katie is leaving scientology. because suri will be treated by thomas a scientologist exclusively. he will be doing things, teaching suri about scientology, indoctrinating her further. if katie doesn't want that for her life, she should be concerned about that. >> it took you three rice to get out of scientology. >> it did. >> why was it so difficult? >> well, my husband and i had been together for 21 years and so each time that i escaped from scientology i returned because of that marriage i wanted to keep that together. when i chose to leave scientology, which was my independent thinking, my husband was forced to disconnect from me. that is why we ended up getting a divorce. my choice to leave scientology. >> when we hear these things about we should be concerned
5:35 am
about suri being indoctrinated into scientology, katie might have to be afraid of it herself, what does that mean? what is going on inside of scientology that is so concerning? >> well, as you raise a child in scientology, that child only learns a scientology world view, which separates people very much from the rest of the world. people outside of scientology, i looked at is if they're uninformed, unen lightened even inferior. the scientology world view excludes other beliefs to where a child is raised only to think that a scntologist, as if that is the only right way to think, which excludes a lot of other general normal behavior. a scientologist is raised with a very controlling attitude, and as you can see by the way tom cruise behaves like in the media, he gets very erratic,
5:36 am
he's very controlling and when he's not in control, he displays behavior that is almost scary. for me, when i see that on tv, having been a former scientologist myself for 16 years, i see that behavior and i say i don't want to be like that. and so he displays behavior that i think is making people say, i don't want to be like a scientologist. >> karen presley, thank you. really interesting. >> thank you. now we turn to lonnie quinn with another check of the weather. hey lon. >> rebecca, good morning to you and good morning everybody. you look at the satellite and radar picture for the united states. it doesn't make a difference where you see rain and clouds. the story is simply that the entire country is hot. as a matter of fact, this area right there, i'll make it nice and big for you it faces the northeast quadrant of the united states. heat alerts have been set up for 22 different states because of such unusual heat. we're talking thermometer readings, 95 to 105. but feeling like 110 or more.
5:37 am
don't get me wrong. that's just this air kra that has the heat alert that's been issued. because that's so strange for this portion of the country. much of the country is 90 or 100. as a matter of fact, the only states that will not find the 90s today, wyoming, south dakota, north dakota, minnesota, rebecca, your home state right there much that's a quick look at the national picture. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend. all right. that does it for weather. make it a happy saturday. anthony, over to you. >> thanks, lonnie. up next for the first time you can find out just how safe your hospital is, or is it? the results will surprise you. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."

just how safe is your hospital? this morning, we have some answers. for the first time consumer reports magazine has investigated hospital safety and the results. they will certainly surprise you. >> dr. -- we're joined this morning with findings. dr. santa x thanks for being with us. >> this is distressing, trankly. how did you -- this is your first survey on this. what were the criteria you looked at? >> we looked at six things, infections, communications about safety issues. the degree to which you come right back in the hospital after you've been discharged. situations in which too many imaging tests that expose you to radiation are being done. common complications in unsafe hospitals and then death rates for several conditions. >> which hospital scored the lowest. >> the lowest hospital in the country was sacred heart hospital in chicago. >> chicago. really? why was that?
5:42 am
>> across the board, in those six areas, they did not do well. they got many of our lowest or close to lowest scores. they weren't preventing infections. the complications were happening. people getting bed sores, falling. they had problems with doing two ct scans when one would suffice. there were a lot of things they could do better. but let me say the best hospitals didn't do as well as i think they could. they know that. the best hospitals know we've got to do better. the problem is not by any means are all hospitals acknowledging that in making this a high priority. >> you said something in the break here that owe which startled me. a doctor, i believe, said that hospitals are the third leading cause of death in this country. >> that's right. for this story. peter, really one of the country's most prominent experts in terms of hospital safety said that he believes if we kept the
5:43 am
best track of this that deaths from safety in hospitals, the third most common cause of death in the country. >> that's troubling. there are on your list some hospitals that are doing the best work, and they are. >> that's right. the clinic hospital in billings, montana is at the top. we talked to them. they acknowledge this is hard work, but they're getting it done. they need to do better. they need to keep making improvements. but they're getting it done. so are many others. >> i'm curious to know because we looked at some of the teaching hospitals in your survey. they didn't do as well as you might think. these were surprising names because you usually associate them with the best quality health care. >> some of the big names. >> that's right. i think a challenge is these are hospitals that have a lot of priorities. we have a lot of expectations from them. they do teaching, they take care of tough patients.
5:44 am
our concern is even for them, safety should be the top or near the top priority. who else will figure this out when it comes to the really complicated stuff? we're concerned that those really best hospitals are the ones we expect to be best aren't doing as well as we would all think. >> doctor, thank you. coming up next -- what are you really doing when you say you are working from home? we know what you're doing. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."

5:50 am
oppose people working at home? >> they feel they can't keep tabs on them, right? they see they're drinking a quarter of them are drinking. when at the office, you have a lot of social distractions. some of the the data shows if you're at home, you don't have the social distractions. yes there's tv, the internet. you're less likely to be chatting at the water cooler and on facebook. less likely talking to co-workers. >> it seems like this would depend on the type of employee. somebody ho is not homer simpson might spend more effort working from home. >> exactly. a lot more effort. especially if you own your own business. i have some advice for employees. you need to set some boundaries. it's very important to you. you need to let your team know and your boss know, listen from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. i'm taking care of the kids, i'm making dinner. i won't be reachable during that time. text me an emergency. set up this expectation that's not what you're doing. also, watch out for social media. this happened recently. a friend of mine said i have a
5:51 am
doctor's appointment. went to a movie and posted on facebook. >> genius. >> friends with the boss -- you got to be careful with what you're doing. this is a smart person, by the way. >> let's just say be careful what you're sharing, especially if you're working from home. if you're the boss, you too want to set expectations. listen, a productive employee is a happy one who is not resent full. you want to allow them time with family, time to rest, time to enjoy things. you want to make sure you set the expectations. i will not contact you after hours or on the weekends unless it's an emergency and it's 2:00 in the morning. unless you're part of a news organization. i say that out of experience. >> breaking news. >> give your employees that downtime. give them those couple hours to have dinner with their children and uninterrupted. >> carmen you will rick, thank you for being here this morning. it was a pleasure. are you going back to work from home? >> on a saturday? >> enjoy. 800 pound mortgage payments. that and other stories behind

6:02 am
access to loan financing and get american made weapons more quickly. while direct u.s. engagement is winding down, the violence in afghanistan continues. this year, 28 native soldiers were killed by afghan forces. the same soldiers they were training to take over security here. afghanistan also needs money. the world bank estimates that $4 billion a year is what is needed. we'll see on saturday whether the u.s. and japan will step up to the plate to continue their funding. for "cbs this morning," i'm margaret brennan in kabul. the deadly violence in syria has again spilled over into neighboring lebanon. syrian mortar fire hit villages in morning. at least two people were killed and ten others injured. the target area had been used as a base by syrian rebels. american airlines and its parent company are suing to stop paying health care and life insurance benefits to its 40,000

6:07 am
brewing. it's been a revolution of young people, saying that they really don't want to see unrealistic and unattainable images in media. it causes problems with body image and self-esteem. eating disorders and other related issues. >> careen a, emmy brings up the point of social media. i was struck because i read these magazines and there was an outcry when i was 16 at the point when i was reading seventeen magazine, there was an outcry over the i am amgs. but now you have social media to take your message and make it bigger. >> yeah. it's definitely helped spread our message. i mean, without spark, i think it would be hard for us to do it alone. i mean, they definitely have been here to support us and have been able to use blogging as an outlet for things that we've been noticing. i mean, personally, i've noticed it all of my life. like not being able to have a role model to look at and say, that looks like me. i've never been able to see --
6:08 am
we're hoping to change that. >> go ahead, amy. >> seventeen is at the forefront with glamour magazine. having diversity within the pages. it would be nice to see all of the magazines be able to step up and show the diversity, not only in body shape but in skin color. >> emma, you have $10,000 signatures, is that right? >> now it's over 15,000. >> that's in how long? >> it's only been a few days. we're really excited about the progress. >> what do you attribute that? >> i think it's an issue that a lot of people care about. let's face it, we all know, we all were and one day a teenage girl. the fact that these images in magazines are so harmful, it makes people want to speak out. how much careena do you think this will help girls to be able to see the untouched images, the unretouched images?
6:09 am
>> it would send the message that we're all beautiful in our own way. if you don't see girls that we can't relate to, we're like, hey, maybe the media doesn't think i'm beautiful because that's not the type of girl i am. that's what i've always dealt with. being a young woman of color, being a woman who owe a young woman who always dealt with weight issues and especially having naturally curly hair. i haven't seen that in the magazines. a lot of my other friends have dealt with that problem. being able to see people that we can relate to, definitely going to help. >> emmy, you would think that it would be good business for a magazine to put models that look like it's audience, wouldn't it? >> absolutely. it's smart to listen to your subscribers. but the healthy media commission is a conglomerate of wonderful leaders within the media.

this morning, another segment from the vault which features the ground-breaking cbs news series person to person hosted by the legendary newsman edward r. murrow. on tuesday, andy griffith died at the anyone of 86. he is best known for the andy griffith show in the 1960s. but before that, he burst on to the scene with no time for sergeant. he and his wife barbara sat down for an interview with edward r murrow in june of 1957. that was a year and a half
6:15 am
before he became the sheriff of mayberry. >> andy and barbara griffith have an apartment in this new york east side building for something like a year now. evening barbara. >> good evening ed. >> good evening, andy. >> how are you, sir? >> i've been reading about you two traveling in parts of the country. >> we have been around pretty good. trying to carry on. what we are is migratory laborers. >> andy, one tar heel to another, when do you expect to go home again? >> well, you do come from north carolina, don't you? >> sure do. >> we hope to go home pretty soon. we bought a house down on roanoke island. in addition yoe, north carolina. you ever been down there? >> no. >> you you can go with us. >> like us. >> do you both have lots of relatives in north carolina? >> i could say we do, ed. i have andy beat on that a little bit. >> yes. she got ten people and well,
6:16 am
from all around. i went on 17 city tour in connection with a motion picture. a face in the crowd. i want to tell you the truth, i never went in one town that one of us didn't have a cousin to call the other. i know barbara rs she's my cousin. >> at least kissing cousins. >> that's right. >> how did you two meet? >> we met at the university of north carolina. i had gone there for graduate work in drama. and they were doing the hiding season and they needed a soprano. so i went in all full of spirit and andy was standing behind a baby grand piano. i shook hands. hands with andy and i don't know, something sort of happened. then i sang my little audition and it just so happened that andy had waited out in the foyer. i thought, well, i got to say something. so i asked him for a match, believe it or not.
6:17 am
>> pardon me, you got a match? >> clever. >> you did a spell of teaching at one time, didn't you? >> i did. three years i was a teacher. not too good, though. i don't know how to just sit down and talk about one thing. and then too, i like to smoke, ed. i understand you do too. >> it's a bad habit, isn't it? >> i used to sit in there and sometimes at the end of class, the bell would ring and i would beat the students out. i had about four places i could smoke. >> how did the teacher become the performer? >> well, we just quit one spring and i slipped -- i smoked and all. they wanted to get rid of me anyhow. we just quit, wrote up some material and got a list of civic clubs and borrowed a thousand dollars and started out. >> you come a long way in a very few years. but you must have had some disappointment, didn't you? >> yeah. just to be fair with you, you
6:18 am
always do in entertainment business. i reckon the first disappointment i ever had was we had just come up from south. it was in january, i believe -- february of 1954. and went to work down here at the blue angel. that's a good spot to work if you know what you're doing. i had no idea what i was doing and i got down and i was what you might say bombed, laid an egg. i flopped. i was pretty unhappy about it and upset. i closed on a wednesday. and the next night, thursday night i learned my very first lesson about entertainment. we went back down there just to watch the new show and i saw a young fella names burl ives. you know him? >> yeah i know him. >> he walked on stage. the audience was called, neither here nor there. he got his guitar and started singing to them, looking them in the eye. pretty soon they looked back at
6:19 am
him. if a performer could do that -- >> how much do you attribute to luck and how much to talent? >> i tell you the truth, you got to have some ability when you're given the ball to carry. but coincidence, being there at the right time is the main thing just to get started. >> it's amazing to think that he hadn't even been on the andy griffith show yet. >> it is amazing. we talked about this last week when we were looking at bogey and bacall. how earnest and candid the individuals were with murrow. >> right. >> we were talking about the smoking moment as we were watching that. >> i was 1-year-old when that was being broadcast. i still remember -- i was thinking about this after i heard he died. that and theme music with the whistle at the beginning of that show, the second i hear it, i associate it with being homesick and watching reruns of that show which i always thought of as such a treat.
6:20 am
>> that is such an interesting point. because i actually, i didn't associate it with being home sick, but now when i think about it, that's when i was able to watch it as well. >> an extraordinary show and great career. >> memories. coming up next, just in time for baseball's allstar game on tuesday. we'll tell you which ball parks are at the top when comes to their food. you like to eat at games, don't you? >> i sure do. >> i sometimes go to the game just to eat. >> for the food. >> you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." have a volcanic eruption near shartsville and it's going to make things toasty across the area. the key to the forecast before this thing makes landfall, it's going to be deflected by godzilla.

come on over. spider man is the action hero sort of movies. is that your thing? >> completely. you have to see the avengers with the kids. spider man is probably on the list. stlie >> there's a lot of superheroes. >> can we go back to the lonely go mets at the desk. i thought it was sweet. >> we may not be at the top of the standings but we have the best food. >> you do have the best food. >> what's your favorite food at citi field? >> i'm a shake shack person. i've waited online not at the stadium but at shake shack itself for 45 minutes for a vanilla shake. >> shake shack, is that just here or is that -- is it all over the country? >> it's hard to get in other places in the country.
6:28 am
i think it's only here. but they've expanded here. it is a danny myer restaurant. he's expanded a lot throughout the city. i'm always shocked by this restaurant for those of you who don't know, it's essentially fast food. >> it's a burger joint. >> people wait 45 minutes, an hour, hour and a half and there's locations throughout the city now and still, even with more than one or two locations, there's a line. >> that line for the museum of natural history goes out the corner, down the block. i mean, it's crazy. >> there's one in the theater district in new york near broadway. you know, you can't -- i've never been there when the wait is less than half an hour. it's mostly tourists from all over the country. >> people will wait for food. that's the bottom line. good food is worth waiting for. would you ever wait for good food? >> the hamburger, hot dog thing? no. >> like a great piece of broccoli? >> taking a little bit of grief here. i like my broccoli and i would wait for good broccoli. ,,,,,,,,

6:30 am
welcome back to "cbs this morning saturday." i'm anthony mason. >> i'm rebecca i can't remember advice. the amazing spider man has a brand new swing. we're going to meet two stuntmen who helped the spidey pull off his death-defying stunts. >> speaking of flying high on our saturday dish, chef floyd car doze will dish about his love of fishing and how he almost became a doctor in bombay. >> i loved him in top chef. i was rooting for him. are you ready for hank williams, jr.? the superstar will sing his hit and go old school performing one of meryl haggard's greatest hits. all coming up. first to lonnie for a final check of the weather this morning. lonnie in. >> good morning, anthony. good morning to you. obviously the talk, it's all
6:31 am
about the heat. it's going to be hot everywhere in this country, including the zip date forecast. that is where the date matches the zip code of the city. 70712 is the zip code for angola, louisiana. sunshine, there's a thunderstorm chance but 93 degrees in angola. you are not alone with the 90s. as a matter of fact, you look at the satellite and radar picture, there's not too much filtering the sunshine. we are all going to be baking, the majority of the country in the 90s and 100s. the only exception. wyoming, north dakota, south dakota and minnesota getting only into the -- rebecca is laughing. only maxing out in the 80s today. but still, hot for everybody else. that's the lower 48. only four states in the 80s. that's a quick look at the national picture. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend.
6:32 am
you know what i just told you it's going to be hot everywhere. it will be hot in hartford, connecticut. 94 today there. that's because where my shoutout is going to hartford for hosting the 32nd annual hartford river fest. it's this very weekend. there are going to be lots of crafts and bounce houses, street hockey and an amazing fireworks display. we want to thank everybody watching "cbs this morning saturday" only on channel 3, eyewitness news. rebecca, anthony, over to you guys. >> thank you, lonnie. appreciate you really taking care of the whole country. shoutouts for minnesota, connecticut. we like that. the a amazing spider is on track to pull in a record gold. it could pull in $140 million by the end of this long fourth of july weekend. it's kind of still going, the fourth of july weekend. one of the reasons it's going so well is the realistic spidey
6:33 am
stunts. >> because they're real. no special effects. just a real life spider man swinging from roof to roof. take a look. >> all right. that was fun. >> awesome. whoo! . hey, watch out. i'm swinging here. i'm swinging here. >> looks like a lot of fun. joining us now are two guys who brought those amazing stunts to life. andy armstrong, the film's stunt coordinator and william, spider man's stunt double. thanks for being here. >> as stunt coordinator, which were the hardest to choreograph? >> reinventions of the way that spidey swings was the biggest challenge coming in.
6:34 am
>> what did you have to do to reinvent it? >> we looked at earlier renditions of spider man's swing, which was almost totally cg. it was just something in the computer. we sort of went back to the drawing board. one of my team that i had on specially for it was an olympic level gymnast. we had him do giant swings on a bar and then videoed it, broke it down and realized from that, what the difference was real and computer generated movement was. >> william, as a result of you being the stunt double, how much of a say do you get in whether it's computer generated versus you going out there and doing it? >> not a lot. that's exciting. anything, though, they'll let you go is exciting because i mean, obviously the reality of it is there. when kids see that, you can actually connect to it. you see computer generated image. you go it's cartoon.
6:35 am
what are we doing here? it's exciting to give the reality to spider man a little bit. >> have you ever had to say no to a stunt? >> no. but there's some i would like to say no to. >> you've been in james bond movies as well. >> i haven't. but no, the stunts -- >> which ones would you like to say no to? >> andy lit me on fire the other day. i wasn't exactly excited approximate that. but then again, he's a full on professional. that's -- >> you're not scared? >> no. when he had done it, no. he knows what he's doing. >> andy, how do you decide when you're doing it for real and when it's cg? >> we approached this movie to do as much as we possibly could for real. there's obviously still some computer generated images in there, in the movie. there's a lot of great use for computer generated stuff to enhance what we do and to make things safer for cable removal
6:36 am
or for the fact that you can put pads and things down so they can be easily removed digitally. wherever possible, we've fought to try to and do things real. >> william, i'm looking at you. you still have all your hair after being set on fire two days ago. i don't see major bruises or cuts or scrapes. is it usually -- do you get roughed up and how roughed up? >> i mean, that's the thing. -- >> he does have a couple of scrapes from the movie. >> little guy there. it is what it is. you sign up for it. you get in there. i think it is the mostly bruises and stuff. again, that's when you work with someone who is a professional and he's not going to do something ridiculously horrible. >> what's the scrape you got there? >> a cable. it was a mistake. in most injuries with stunts end up inevitably being a mistake or something gone wrong or nothing to be proud of. most of us with a long career in
6:37 am
stunts have had injuries. it's it goes with the territory. it's nothing to be -- to boast about. >> thank you. appreciate it. andy armstrong, william spencer. >> hanks for being with us this morning. >> thank you. up next, top chef floyd car dose dishes his hot new restaurant in new york city. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."
